Microhoo: Ballmer takes off his gloves

Cnet writes:

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and his troop of strategists, lawyers, accountants, and bankers are done seeking a peaceful resolution with Yahoo's board of directors. It's been more than two months since Microsoft made what Ballmer calls a "generous" offer of $31 per share to acquire Yahoo. The more hostile phase of the negotiation is about to take place as evidenced in the letter sent by Ballmer to Yahoo CEO and co-founder Jerry Yang and its board of directors today.

"What Ballmer means: Jerry, we have your shareholders on our side. Take the money, become the Chief Yahoo again and let us drive from here on out. Google is only getting stronger. We have to act now!"

If you squint your eyes at the picture, it look like someone has carved a giant Steve Ballmer into the lower half of Mount Fuji.
